While you still can, tour the 9,000-square-meter, graffiti-covered compound's galleries, ateliers, performance space, cinema, and theater—Tacheles loses its ten-year lease in late 2008, when the building is slated to become a Soho-style entertainment strip. After rambling around the old structure, have a beer at the slapdash roof terrace Offenbar.
